[Ungodly] people are grumblers and complainers, living only to satisfy their desires. They brag loudly about themselves, and they flatter others to get what they want. (Jude 1:16 NLT)
do you know someone who lives like this? They grumble and complain. They boast. They butter people up just to get on their good side.
Yes, we all know people like that. And Jude tells us here, in this very short book, to be on our guard against such people. If we see someone being mislead, we should help them to get back on the right path.
I don’t think I’ve ever read Jude before. In fact, there are a few short books in the NT that are new to me. I know OF them, but not what they contain.
Now, as the calendar year draws to a close and Advent turns into Christmas, I am seeking out new verses to comment on. It’s been a long road and the end is almost here.
Not time to say Goodbye just yet, however!
